    Remember Boof offering to stand down for Clarke because he remembered what it was like to not get selected as a young player of great skill Didn't want the same to happen to Clarke. Boof's a legend.

    It was 7 tests actually. Pup's first three in India then 2 against NZ and 2 against Pak before Boof got dropped for good.

    Hopefully Invers is next.
    Not any more chaos now, but yes, please.

    Wow this is shocking. Australia is becoming the new Pakistan in terms of sheer amount of off-ground stuff. Seems like Warner incident could've been the proverbial straw that broke the camel's back. When CA was extremely critical of the incident and chided team leadership, Arthur was keen to downplay it and attribute it to Warner's naivety.

    I can sense player resentment being a factor here. Warning signals to pup also this sacking imo.

    tbf I don't have too many arguments with the Ashes squad, but the India schemozzle, the one day and t-20 selections and just baffling things Invers is often saying don't fill me with confidence. A clean out with him following Mickey out the door wouldn't really add to the chaos. Won't happen, but wouldn't be a bad move.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Wow, feel sorry for Lehmann. He's being thrown a bit of a hospital pass here.

    also, was it ever confirmed the players were allowed to be on the town the night they were? England/ECB were quick to say their guys were, but Australia/CA?

    We know that Sutherland is over there, and we know that Sutherland was pretty pissed off with the entire team and leadership hierarchy over the Warner thing, so that's not the worst theory tbh

    Won't know before 9pm either way (and even then...)
